There is no known cure for diabetes, which is a chronic disease that afflicts 1 in 10 Americans. The Chester County Hospital believes education is the most important component to managing diabetes. Take a step in the right direction and support The Diabetes Self Management Program at The Chester County Hospital by participating in the 19th Annual Parkway Dash 4 Diabetes. The competitive 5K run and leisurely 2.5K walk, presented by Parkway, starts at the Chester County Justice Center on April 6 at 2:30 PM and travels through the beautiful West Chester Borough. The registration fee for the Dash is $25. To register or for more information, visit www.ChesterCountyHospital.org and search “Dash.” Registration is also available day-of the event.
